St. John Bosco’s standouts speak

Representing at Saturday night’s St. John Bosco vs. Corona Centennial game played at Cerritos College was photographer Scott Kurtz, who also spoke to junior quarterback Josh Rosen and sophomore running back Sean McGrew. Rosen threw for five touchdowns, but McGrew stole the spotlight by accounting for 400 yards and scoring seven times in the wild-and-wacky 70-49 victory.

“He was just ridiculous tonight,” Rosen said of McGrew. “We knew coming into the game it was going to be a high scoring game and didn’t care who scored, just so we won. I didn’t take care of my job 100 percent in the passing game and I’ll take responsibility for that. I missed a lot of opportunities. We would like to throw more but the coaches need more confidence in us.”

McGrew himself was of course quick to mention his blockers.

“I credit my O-line,” he said. “There were so many long touchdown runs, after the third one, I started to get tired and needed a little rest after each one.”

Looking ahead to next week’s titanic matchup with De La Salle of Concord, which has won four straight CIF Open Division titles, Rosen said: “it’s the last game of the season and we don’t want to end the season on a loss like last year. It was too crushing. we will put it all on the field because there’s nothing to save for. It should be a fun game.”

Scott also wanted to make sure our audience knows that when McGrew was getting interviewed, head coach Jason Negro came over and messed up his hair, letting everyone around know that he’s only a sophomore.

    Ode to Coach Negro if you read this site:

    Tell the referees to watch each play that DLS runs for a rolling start. They use it whenever they need a first down and often times at the goal line but not on every play so it is hard for the referees to call it consistently. They have done this for decades and nobody ever brings the issue up. That is why their offensive lines can get into defenders before they know what hit them and by then the backs are 5 yards down field with a head of steam. Figure out how to stop that and the game won’t even be close. Most coaches can’t figure it out which is why the north has a 0-250 record against them.

      Why don’t you just call the CIF yourself? If it’s that obvious you should call instead of posting comment on here. Apparently, something is wrong or your evidence is not strong to back such ludicrous accusations.
